Girl's camp.... Taylor's first year - tons of fun! Zero sleep, rag curls, wonderful spiritual moments, and my personal favorite, (for real!) - camp songs!!
The O.M.E.H. garage sale! With lots of help from some wonderful friends, it was a great success! Chip raised about $500 to go toward his bike and people also donated separately to help out with the trip. There are some great new posts on Chip's blog including a picture of his bike and also a post explaining the significance of his American Flag he will be riding with. It is quite inspiring - Take a look
We got to see Grampa Kossub for the first time in almost three years. What a fun treat that was for us! He drove the Makaafi's moving van here to Boise for them.
Speaking of the Makaafi's - HOORAY!! They are here and everything is going wonderfully! We love them so very much.
Fo'ou brought something that is new to the Schultz's - X Box!! It's always great to see the change in behavior when the evil threat is given, "No X box tomorrow!" And suddenly I don't have kids begging to pick up a gallon of milk at the store with me... that's okay, I welcome the break sometimes! Sure is great to have though when you need to hear yourself think for a while (as long as that ridiculous racing game music is muted!)
Our great friends, the Springers, were driving through Boise on a road trip and spent an evening with us for a barbecue. - What a wonderful evening! It was so great to laugh at old memories and introduce each other to new children!
Chip made a new friend for life...
Chip and Fo'ou spent a lot of time and effort mounting Chip's flag onto his trailer. They knew it had to fly tall and strong for 7 weeks of riding, so it was no easy task! After several attempts, and trips to Home Depot, they did it!!
Chip's trial ride with the flag...
I can't believe how soon Chip leaves! I am scared, anxious, nervous, and excited. But most of all, I am one proud wife. Chip is confident and motivated. He believes in his cause with all of his heart, and will do everything in his power to make it a wonderful success. I know he will! He is using his life to touch the lives of others. He is my hero.
